tv New Day Sunday CNN February 23, 2014 3:00am-5:31am PST
bring him back to justice and find him guilty. poison. one man is dead and 27 people are hospitalized from carbon monoxide poisoning in new york. on the run. ukraine's president is stopped trying to flee the country. the former prime minister is freed from prison. so, now the question is, who is in control of the country? and if you thought you'd heard the end of the polar vortex, think again. a deep freeze is coming back this week and another winter storm may pound the northeast.
your "new day" starts now. all right. sunday has been waiting for you and it's already 6:00. how did that happen? >> it happens so fast. >> i'm christi paul. glad to have you with us today. >> i'm victor blackwell. this is "new day sunday." >> we want to start the day on new york's long island. carbon monoxide left a man dead. almost 30 other people, they were rushed to the hospital. alexandra field is there outside the mall. alexandra, do we know yet where this leak started? >> this morning, victor, homicide are focusing on heating equipment. there is a sign posted on the door now that says the building has been condemned for occupancy
while this investigation unfolds. emergency crews rushed here last night. called for a report that a woman had fallen in the basement and hit her head. when they arrived here, more people became sick and they found the restaurant's general manager 55-year-old steven nelson unconscious in the basement. he was rushed to the hospital and he was later pronounced dead. they quickly evacuated the legal s seafoods and evacuated two restaurants near to the legal seafoods. here's what the customers had to say about the scary experience. >> we were sitting at the bar having a glass of wine and i think one of the waitresses came up. i had to leave because i didn't want to blow up or anything like that. they told us to stay outside. >> in all, nearly 30 people were taken to local hospitals showing
signs they were sickened by the gas. that number includes seven first responders and no one is in life-threatening condition. christi, victor. >> homicide detectives are on the scene. is that standard procedure? >> something that we spoke to suffolk police about. when the cause of death or origin of death is not immediately obvious, like maybe in the case of the car accident that it is standard that homicide detectives are called in to look at any factors that could have contributed to a death. >> that happened at legal seafoods. are we hearing from the owners of this franchise or this restaurant? what are they saying? >> a tweet put out by legal seafoods and in that tweet they're offering their condolences to the family of the general manager and expressing really their sadness for his loss. thoughts what we heard from the restaurant at this point. >> all right, alexandra, thank
you. all right, now we need to get to the chaos and confusion that is the ukraine this hour. take you live to the capital kiev where there are so many question es about ukraine's future after everything has changed in just the past 24 hours. look at these live pictures. we understand all are barricades around the people. the man who was in charge has fled. >> may became the next leader. more on her stunning release. >> reporter: no one started their day thinking this was possible. by evening, news had spread and thousands had come to see her in a wheelchair because of severe back pain.
this is a different ukraine. she told the crowd not to leave until they build the country they want. they come here tonight because they know together they all play a role in securing her freedom because together they are changing their country. in 2004 she was a leader in what became known as the orange revolution, overturning a corrupt election result. she became prime minister and later a presidential candidate but lost. she was then jailed for abusing power while in office. now ukraine in the throws of a
revolution. they voted to free her just hours earlier. "i think that ukraine will do well now," she tells me. "it will be in europe and free and democratic." the daughter lobbied world leaders to help her mother. >> i burst out crying and i was trying to see her and i just feel so proud to be her daughter. i've just been so proud to be ukrainian. >> reporter: this woman has an army of loyal supporters but this isn't mandela moment. people here have good reasons for disliking presidents. tymoshenko's image was tarnished by fighting and disappointment. she is now expected to fight for the presidency. she must convince a divided nation she can leave them again.
>> all right, phil black is with us now from kiev. phil, we now know that ukrainian lawmakers, the ukrainian parliament has handed presidential power to the parliament speaker. explain this to us. >> yes, sir the parliament speaker has been given the job of stabilizing the country and forming a new government and getting the country through this interim period. keeping in mind the constitution has changed over the last few days, so, the president, though the presidential role doesn't have all the executive power as it did under viktor yanukovych but he's in control and guide the formation of the government and choosing a prime minister in the parliament and so forth. it is certainly another blow eto viktor yanukovych the guy in control up until so recently. so, very much a consolidation of
power by those opposition forces here in the capital here, victor. >> is it too soon at this point to categorize or label what we're watching as a revolution? >> well, in the sense that political power as it was in this country has been overthrown. no, it is absolutely a revolution. but it is one, i think, still very much in progress and that is because the man who is or was president depending on whom you ask victor yanukovych he fled to his core support to the country and his intentions and decisions next will determine just how this plays out from here. if he draws a line and says, i am the president and this is what he said yesterday, i'm going to hold on to power, then, in a worse-case scenario, this country could split down the middle as the east/west sides battle for control. that is a worst-case scenario.
but too soon to say just what will happen. we're waiting for vikotr yanukovych as reported last night he is trying to flee the country. if he does that, the transition over the next few days will be more orderly. >> he said he will not do do that and claims himself as being the legitimate president. thank you for walking us through everything that is happening there minute by minute. new this morning, the taliban is suspending negotiations to free army sergeant. he is the only american soldier held captive. the taliban had wanted to exchange him for five taliban prisoners held at guantanamo bay and now the taliban says it's stopping talks because of situations. bergdahl has been held captive
since 2009. but diplomats were having sensitive discussions with intermediaries. one of the most violent men in the world behind bars for the first time in more than a decade. >> assassinated journalists and just some of the horrors directly connected to joaquin guzman. after a 13-year manhunt a joint operation led to guzman's capture at a resort on mexico's west coast. a landmark achievement and here's a quote. the criminal activity goes contributed to the death and destruction of millions of lives through drug addiction, violence and corruption. >> cnn's nick parker has more for us. >> one of the world's most notorious drug lords behind bars.
joaquin guzman was paraded before the media, the first public glimpse in years. the government says the investigation has been ongoing for several months. >> translator: there are several moments he could have been apprehended but prudence and m common sense prevented us from making it in a place that could not be affected. that is precisely why with great efficiency it cause executed by the team. >> reporter: in a resort city, a popular destination for u.s. tourists. marines found more than 130 guns and 19 armored cars and two grenade launchers. eric holder is calling the arrest of the arrest of the leader of the cartel a landmark achievement. but some are skeptical on the impact of the flow of drugs.
>> first of all, the senior cartel is not run by him exclusively. it has three top leaders. guzman was able to run part of the cartel from prison before. so very little making us think that he will not be able to do that again. >> reporter: guzman previously escaped from a maximum security prison in a laundry cart. he was recently named public enemy number one in chicago. but analysts say it's unlikely he will be immediately deported as the current administration has not extradited other drug lords wanted in the u.s. nick parker, cnn, mexico city. still to come, the winter olympics are coming to an end today. see what you missed last night and all the highlights from the balmy and controversial sochi balmy and controversial sochi games. dy at rest tends to stay at rest...

the winter olympics in sochi are coming to an end. closing ceremonies will start at 11:00 eastern today. here's where the medal count stands as of right now. russia is leading the pack with 32 medals after sweeping the podium in the men's cross country skiing. the u.s. has the second most medals, 27. doesn't look like they'll be able to top russia. norway third with 26 medals. >> only a couple events left today. the hockey gold medal game and bobsled. speaking of bobsled, did you see this? canada's bobsled team has a nasty crash going around the first bend. their hopes crushed but otherwise they seemed okay which is the most important thing. they all walked away after that crash. >> there was also the disappoint from american skier ted ligety
fall down and does fought finish on his final run of the men's slalom afterwards he criticized the tough course. from balmy wet weather to controversial figure skating, ian lee has more for us. >> reporter: the winter olympics made headlines before it even began. tucked away in a volatile neighborhood the terrorist threat attack was very real but russian president vladimir ring of steel has kept the game safe so far. officials wished that was their only worry. it wasn't. it became clear weeks before the opening that sochi wasn't ready, literally. unfinished hotels, some sketchy water, even bobsledder johnny quinn had to bust out of his bathroom naked.
but all of this seemed to melt away once the games kicked off or it could have been the scorching weather. people in sochi soaked in the sun and took a dip in the black sea with temperatures hitting the mid-60s. skiers on the slopes would have had better luck with water skis than alpine. the games had its highs and lows. we learned the latest snowboarding lingo like spice. >> spice! >> spice! >> reporter: usa men swept the podium in freestyle skiing, gus kenworthy may have won. but the flying tomato shaun white had a rotten olympics, coming away empty handed. it may not have been a miracle on ice, but a marathon with team usa beating russia after an eight-round shootout.
the sweetness of beating the former cold war rival wouldn't last long. as the united states rival to the north, canada, would halt the americans gold medal ambitions. the canadians didn't stop there. giving the usa women a silver medal for the second olympics in a row. games aside, we learned a bit more about our russian friends. the food is delicious with no after taste. looking good in russia, though, is going to cost you. this fashion statement would set me back $1,700. of course, we learned at the end of the day vodka is a good way to make friends. >> $1,700? >> i'm still laughing that you would have to have a couple shots of that vodka to deal with the fact that you just paid $1,700. >> we have ian live in soc hhi. what can we expect from the closing ceremonies today? >> first of all, it kicks off at
8:14, that does sound like a weird time, 8:14. if you go with the 24 hour clock it translates to 2014 of the games. that's supposed to make a good first impression. closing ceremonies is meant to leave a lasting impression. we're still expecting to see a lot of fireworks and a lot of pageantry and also we're expecting a little bit of a tease from seoul who will host the winter olympics in the next four years. we're expecting quite a show tonight. >> ian lee, enjoy it and thank you so much. next on "new day." listen, if they're enjoying warm weather in sochi. folks here in the u.s., as the that's not our story, at least it won't be soon. brace yourself, the polar vortex pill will make a comeback this week and plunge much of the u.s. into a deep freeze. forecast ahead.

paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. here are five things you need to know for your "new day." >> ukraine's ousted president insists he is still in control even though he's on the run. his office is forming a new national unity government. the parliament also freed his political arch rival from prissen and she told a huge crowd in kiev that ukraine is done with its "dictator." elections set for march 25th. one of the most dangerous and violent men in the world is behind bars for the first time in more than a decade. drug lord joaquin guzman petter known as el chapo was arrested this weekend. more than 130 guns, 19 armored cars and two grenade launchers were found at the scene. number three, one man is dead and nearly 30 others were hospitalized in a carbon monoxide leak last night at a restaurant at a new york mall.
the investigation is ongoing but police believe the leak may have started with the heating system in the basement. number four the american student who disappeared while studying abroad in italy has been found dead. we told you about this young man yesterday. his body was discovered in a railroad tunnel in central rome. he was out with friends the night he went missing. italian investigations are now looking into dirkin's death. sports fans pay a steep price to own a piece of history. belonging to sports legend like mohammad a mohammed ali babe ruth's pocket watch, the new owner paid more than $700,000 for it. you know, for today's faces
of faith, this is a dangerous, sometimes deadly ritual. we're talking about snake handling for worship and a lot of people are just perplexed by this. >> especially considering one week after kentucky pastor and tv show died from a rattlesnake bite his son has taken over the pulpit. last night cody delivered his first sermon with the same snake that killed his father. >> joining us over the phone co-author of "them that believe." a psychologist, thank you for being with us. i understand you were at last night's sermon. tell us about it, what was it like? >> good morning, christi and victor. it was a service that was very typical of what goes on in every service where people follow the signs. >> so, did you have a chance to speak with cody last night and
if you did, what did he say? >> yes, i had an opportunity to spend time with cody and his mother and his sister and he was concerned about, this being his first night as pastor at the church and he was concerned with what they usually are concerned with, experiencing the full anointment that allows them empowerment to view the signs and there were about 50 believers that were gathered together. he began the service with about half an hour of guidelines that he felt were necessary to be established. especially since he was, for the first time, assuming the full responsibility as the leader of the church. he talked about the need for children to be controlled in the church, which is not that
uncommon. we also talked about guidelines for serpents that people should wait until the full anointing would be there. then, again, that there might not be some kind of circumhandling because there is always this concern of waiting until the moving or the full anointing of god. >> let me ask you something. a lot of people are watching this wondering why this one verse of the bible seems so central to this family and this group of believers. god, yes, in the bible, you know, tells us he will protect us, but he also tells us to be wise and responsible. do they see that other people think it's irresponsible to put themselves in harm's way or are we misunderstanding this? >> well, we must keep in mind that this particular condition
comes from a rich tradition of holiness and pen costalism that where the immediate presence of god is desired and it's felt and central to both those traditions, chapter 16 versus 17, 18 and, of course, this tradition they look at this expression or these statements by jesus concerning passing out bells and speaking and drinking the deadly thing if the spirit mandates and laying on the hands. these things are all central to part of that tradition and, so, what is interesting is that this particular group looks at all five signs as being legitimate signs and not simply the speaking of tongues which some
do practice without going further. >> on the show yesterday we had a reporter on with "lexington herald" and he sat down with cody coots and cody told him in conversations with his father his father said if people just felt an ounce of what i feel, they would never judge me again. what is it that they feel? i know you just described some of the elements of the service, but what is it that they feel that continues to, even after the man died to go back to serpent handling? >> well, what they feel is what they describe as anointing. if you ask those who experience this -- it's not only, but it's also experience among pencostal
tradition and if you ask them what that is like, they'll often say, well, it's a moving of god upon them. they'll talk about love, experience of peace and joy. one person said it's like you can put your arms around the whole world and love the whole world. no words, no concern for the things of life. but only the connections beyond. the anointing is the highest high that we can ever, ever receive or ever experience. some within this tradition dislike that. other traditions have people who experience drug abuse and oftentimes the reference to the use of drugs becomes a metaphor
for them. however, they would be careful to say that this is something that transcends that. it's more powerful than that. >> it's, obviously, a very strong feeling even after cody coots' father died after the bite from that snake to go back and take the pulpit. thank you so much for joining us this morning and really giving us a look inside. you know, there was a reality show but you know the family really well and the dedication it goes to take that pulpit. >> thank you very much. the roman catholic church has 19 new cardinals. pope francis presented them with their traditional red cap and ring and the new cardinals come from around the world, including brazil, the ivory coast and haiti. there are no americans in this group, but there is one canadian. >> and the story we've been following has developed a lot. many changes in the last 48
hours. one of them is release of tymoshenko. trademark braid. that braid is more than a hair do. defining image of a new political movement. [ male announcer ] this is jim. a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto. like warfarin, xarelto is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem that doesn't require routine blood monitoring.
so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto with aspirin products, nsaids, or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto can cause bleeding, which can be serious and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto, tell your doctor about any conditions
such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto. once-a-day xarelto means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.
at points encouraging the ukrainian opposition to keep up the fight for independence. >> remember, she has been in prison for two and a half years but instantly recognizable to her supporters. that blond braided crown. that's her trademark and calling card. but not just a hairstyle. this is very calculated. >> editorial producer nadia bilchik is here to explain. why that hairstyle, why that braid? >> to understand yulia tymoshenko's hair is to understand her career. she was known as the energy mogul of ukraine. in 2005 when she ran for prime minister she was considered fortune 500's 100 most powerful women. so, how do you transform the image of a tough businesswoman into a prime ministerial candidate? she met with image consultants and brand experts who say let's
make her look more like a country schoolteacher. that braid was supposed to represent four key things and that was innocence and patriotism and royalty and tradition. so, by wearing her hair in this manner, she conveyed a completely different image to this tough, self-made millionaire. >> has she really worn it that way every since? was she wearing it like this when she went to jail. >> when she went to jail in 2007 and a lot of time in a prison hospital. you've seen her with a long braid on the side. >> on the side. >> which people often ask is this her real hair. in front of supporters she said, look, i am a serious politician. you know, this is my real hair and she took down the hair. these are my nails and i don't wear a lot of cosmetics and, if you see the images of her released yesterday, you'll notice that her hair, the top of her hair is quite a bit darker than the braid. so, obviously, having been in
prison, not a good colorist in ukrainian prison. >> i think it reinforces how important imagery is in politics. i think about madeline albright and those broaches. she wrote an entire book about how much -- >> the brand. >> but this brand, braid brand of yulia has taken us to the olympics. because wier wore a braid in solidarity with the ukrainians that wanted to join the eu. miller represented this hairstyle. it's a statement. >> everybody is wondering if she will be the next president. >> she has not said at this point. she has not said she will run for president. again, we absolutely don't know. interestingly enough in terms of the hair braid it's so popular that even youtube videos on how to braid your hair like yulia tymoshenko. we didn't want to trivlize it.
she is a woman who wanted to change her image. what has to be interesting is if hillary runs for president in 2016, in terms of her image. what are her image consultants going to say? what are her brand specialists going to say? one thing when one wants to convey authority it happens in the clothing. three key things structure, proportion and fit. what about this garment makes me look authorative? what about my hair makes me look presidential? it really brings an interesting debate, but certainly seeing a lot more yulia tymoshenko in the next while. >> i wonder if she will carry it over. >> i think when people immediately saw that braid, they knew who she was. even in the last two and a half years spending time in prison and she was in a wheelchair because of her -- >> he has degenitive.
>> and i want people to know we're having this conversation about tymoshenko and clinton, this is also something men think about. i remember al gore say, if you see me shave the beard and lose weight, then you know something is happening. because men think about that, as well. of course, political consultants look out for the candidates. >> the power of image. >> yes. >> and the brand braid. >> all right, nadia bilchik, thank you. the weekend is wrapping up, as you know. the supreme court justices may want to sleep in because they may be hearing some pretty controversial cases. comi we'll have a preview for you next. the great american novel. so you can happily let life get in the way, while planning for tomorrow. so you can finish the great american novel

carbon monoxide poisoning. >> it is scary that we were just sitting there. >> reporter: cathy and ashley were at cheesecake factory at the walt whitman mall in huntington, new york, when the wait staff told the entire restaurant to get out. >> we were sitting at the bar having a glass of wine and somebody came over, i think one of the waitresses. she said you had to leave. >> reporter: police and emergency responders were called to the mall after a report that a woman had fallen and hit her head in the basement of legal sea foods. when authorities arrived and began investigating, they themselves reported feeling nauseated and dizzy, symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure. restaurants in the area were immediately evacuated. >> we had to leave. because i didn't want to blow up or anything like that. so, i didn't know how dangerous it was and they just told us to stay outside. >> reporter: emergency crews found legal sea foods' manager 55-year-old steven nelson unconscious in the basement. he was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. more than two dozen other
victims including seven first responders were also sickened by the gas and had to be taken to area hospitals with nonlife threatening symptoms. >> now, i think that's scary that we were in the same building. >> legal sea foods has responded saying they are devastated by the news of the leak. they took to twitter to also say we are profoundly saddened to learn of the death of our general manager, steve nelson. our thoughts and prayers are with his family. >> thank you, alexandra. now, oh, what a tumulltuous weekend it's been. a lot of chaos and still confusion right now in the ukraine. >> live pictures to show you. this is the capital kiev. huge crowds here. they have been filling the city's square for months now and their president is on the run after his parliament kicked him out of office. new surveillance video seems to show so him leaving his
luxurious country home outside kiev by helicopter. cnn has not confirmed the video's authenticity. but also now lawmakers are turning his powers over to his speaker. >> one of the newest developments this morning. let's get to cnn's phil black who is in kiev. so, phil, first of all, what does this mean for president viktorstep yanukovych. his arch rival says ukraine is finished with him. how much political power does he still have there, if any? >> well, he's significantly diminished figure and that's why he has fled to the east of the country. that is where his heartland is, his core support and really determines here, we wait to see what he does next now. that will decide just where this goes. yesterday conflicting behavior from president yanukovych declared he is still the president and stick around and fight to hold on to the country. late last night border authority
said he tried to board a charter flight to leave. wasn't allowed to do so because his documentation wasn't in order. now wait to see just what that next step is. if he decides to stay in ukraine, try to hold on to the presidency and hold on to control of the country, then the risk of a split down that east/west access becomes far more likely. that's the worse-case scenario. people talking about this country, potentially, splitting in two. we'll get a sense in the coming day or so depending on just what his next steps are. >> you know, phil, some of the images especially of the last 24 to 48 hours are reminiscent of other political and social revolutions that we've seen over the last several years. you have a mubarak-style escape, potentially. we've got this hussein-style wealth when they took over the presidential palace and then reminiscent of the arab spring, you have people who are just taking over the public square. is revolution the right word for
what we're watching? the right description and characterization? >> there does seem to be a script that these events do follow, indeed. i think it is, it is a revolution because the political power, as it was, has been overturned. but it is still very much a revolution in progress. yanokovych fate and decisions he has yet have not been revealed. his next steps will determine how this plays out asand how orderly it concludes itself and play an enormous role in the history of this country. >> phil black live in kiev as we see the live pictures of the crowds there at independence square. we'll check back, thank you. one of the most dangerous and violent men in the world is behind bars after a nearly 13-year manhunt. joint operation by mexican and american officials led to the capture of joaquin guzman and his capture.
him and his cartel are accused of executing journalists, stuffing bodies in garbage bags. cnn's nick parker has more on his final moments. >> reporter: one of the world's most notorious drug lords behind bars. joaquin guzman was paraded before the public in mexico city, the first public glimpse in years. the investigation has been ongoing for several months. >> translator: there were several moments he could have been apprehended but prudence and common sense prevented us from making the arrest in a place where citizens could be affected. we decided not to endanger the public and wait for the right time. without a single shot fired, the arrest was executed by the navy team. >> reporter: he was caught in a condo department a popular destination for u.s. tourists. marines found more than 130
guns, 19 armored cars and two grenade launchers. 13 others were also arrested. u.s. attorney general eric holder is calling the arrest a landmark achievement. some analysts are skeptical about the real impact on the flow of drugs. >> first of all, the cartel is not run by him exclusively. it's a conversation that has at least three top leaders. second, joaquin guzman was able to run part of the cartel from prison before. so very little making us think that he will not be able to do that, again. >> reporter: guzman previously escaped from a maximum security prison in 2001 in a laundry cart. there is an outstanding extradition warrant in the united states where he was recently named public enemy number one in chicago. unlikely immediately deported as the current administration has not extradited other drug lords wanted in the u.s. nick parker, cnn, mexico city.

we got crushed by finland. 5-0 in the bronze game and this one got real ugly fast. finland scored two goals in an 11-second span. real quick. then they scored three more goals in the third period. so, it was a 5-0 loss. now, for usa hockey as a whole, three losses in three days. so much hype and so much anticipation went into the final part of the tournament and then just a complete downfall. thursday the women lost to canada and then the men lost to canada on friday and, of course, yesterday we lost to finland. no medal for the men. not all bad news. steve holcomb and the usa one bobsled team picked up the final medal at the olympics. they won bronze in the four-man bobsled just a few minutes ago. team usa made it to the podium in a blink of an eye. finished 0.03 ahead of russia. right now they're standing to get fourth place in that. so, the final medal count as it stands now, russia leading the
pack with 32 medals. 33 medals. that's where they'll stay and then the u.s. has the second most medals at 28 because just won the bronze in the four-man bobsled and norway is in third with 26. so, as you guys said, closing ceremonies at 11:00 a.m. eastern and the game physical you look at the medal count, the games estimated to cost somewhere around $52 billion for russia. it averages out to about $1.5 billion per medal. pretty expensive. so, obviously, 2016 rio for the summer games and the 2018 south korea for next winter games. >> all righty. >> thank you, joe. still to come on "new day" a sad ending to that american student who went missing in rome. we're going to hear from his classmates and two different racially charged incidents at ole miss putting students on edge. next, we'll hear from one student who said someone called

memories of what was a campus where racism thrived. today, despite the incidents, university chancellor tells cnn the climate of ole miss is one of tolerance and acceptance. >> we do have systemic racism in our country. we have it in this state and we have it in this university. much less so than in years past. but there is racism everywhere in the world. i wish that it weren't so. >> reporter: why is it such a bigger deal here when it happens at ole miss? >> because this university was founded on the principals of slavery. >> reporter: worked for racial reconciliation based at ole miss and they help communities heal from decades' old wounds. >> i think quite a bit has changed here. that's not to say that we still don't have a lot of work to do. but not the same university it was in 1972. >> reporter: all the students

so glad to see you on what i hope is a lazy sunday morning for you. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. let's start with five things you need to know for your new day. up first, this story out of new york. one man dead, nearly 30 others hospitalized in a carbon monoxide leak last night at a restaurant at this mall in huntington station. now, the investigation is
ongoing, but police believe the leak may have started with the heating system in the basement. number two, first ukraine's parliament kicked the president out of office and now it's turning over his powers to its speaker and firing several ministers who supported him. take a look at this. new surveillance video we're showing you seems to show the ousted leader fleeing his country home by helicopter. he is believed to be in a prorussian stronghold in eastern ukraine after failing to get a plane out of the country. number three, the taliban says it's suspending negotiations with the u.s. to free burgdahl. now the taliban says it's stopping talks. because of sensitive political situations. he has been held captive by insurgents in pakistan since 2009. number four, investigators are trying to determine what caused a deadly small plane
crash in georgia. three people were killed when the twin engine plane went down at the lagrange airport yesterday afternoon. the pilot was trying to land when apparently he spotted another plane on the runway and then tried to avoid a collision and that's when he crashed. temperatures across the country expected to plunge this week. new york, chicago, washington, they're going to see another surge of arctic air and some eastern states are actually expected to battle subzero temperatures. if you live in the south, though, you still have a little time to soak up the sun. it's going to be around 70 today in atlanta. just saying. just saying. we're going to get it back now, thanks to you. we're going to get hit with like 30 degree weather. >> i know. listen, i know that big chunk of the community is outraged. >> protect businesses from
lawsuit physical they refuse services to gays or anybody else held on religious beliefs. arizona governor veto it, but how would you feel about this bill if you were both a devout christian and gay? >> joining us now via skype justin lee in raleigh, north carolina, founder and executive director of the gay christian network and also the author of the book "torn rescuing the gospel from the gays versus christian debate." justin, good morning to you. thank you for being with us. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> so, i know that it's easy on the surface to cast this bill in arizona as christians versus gays. how do you feel about this whole thing? >> well, i don't think it's that simple at all. that's the kind of dichotomy, the kind of image that we see in the culture a lot on these kinds of topics. but the reality is that there are christians with many different views on this bill. many christians who strongly
oppose this kind of legislation, as well. and, in fact, often what's really going on here is we have different understandings of what it really means to be gay so that you got folks who see being gay as a lifestyle choice who want to encourage folks not to make that choice. and then you've got other folks who say, no, look, this is my orientation. this is what i feel, it's who i am and so when you do something that harms me as a person, you're discriminating against me, not on the basis of any choice i made, but just who i am. >> the verse that many christians who oppose gay marriage or homosexuality point to in 1822, though shall not with man kind and we saw the protest there with signs about the golden rule and love thy neighbor as thy self and it
appears this way that some of the people who oppose gay marriage oppose serving gays choose the leviticus verse with completely forgetting about all the other verses of impartiality and loving each other. >> matthew 7, no judging. >> you know what, christians have long had different views on thelod th theological questions. the church is wrestling with what we'll call sin and not call sin. the bible tells us to love god, to love our neighbors and to love our enemies and essentially we're supposed to love everyone, whoever they are and i think in this debate what's often happened is that christians have become known not for our love, but for our hate and our discrimination and our bigotry and that's contrary to the
message of jesus. many christian friends may disagree with me on the theology of marriage, for instance. as long as they treat me with love and respect, i'm okay with differences on theological opinion. >> let me ask you from a christian standpoint, is it fair to ask a business to provide a service for something that they think is against their religious beliefs? how do you address that issue? >> you know, those kinds of issues can get really complicated and with this legislation, in particular, we've heard a lot about say the wedding photographer asked to photograph the same-sex wedding. i'll be honest with you, as a gay man f, if i get married som day and a photographer or caterer says i don't want to be part of your event. to be honest -- >> you don't want them, right? exactly. >> i can't imagine wanting someone to be part of my wedding
who doesn't want to be there. from what i can tell, these seem to be a tiny sliver of the kind of cases that a bill like this affects. to me it's sort of like if you have a fly on the wall and you decide to take care of it by bringing in a wrecking ball and knocking down the house. this is a bill that has the potential to impact religious freedom for everybody. to say that every business owner could deny services to me, not just on the basis of my being gay but being evangelical. so if i hail a cab and say, take me to the baptist church and the cabby says, oh, well, i don't agree with baptists, so, i don't want to take you to the baptist church. that that would be legal. and in america i think, you know, religious freedom means i have the right to practice my religion and i have the right to be free from discrimination on. >> i think from having conversations with people on
social media and in person why this, above all, we know that the national organization from marriages is focused on defining marriage as one man, one woman, but i see no initiative to combat divorce. i mean, if you're trying to support marriage, why not keep couples together? why this? beyond all the sins that are detailed in the bible? >> that's a question a lot of evangelicals have been asking ourselves, as well. and i think part of it is there is a perception on the part of some christians and evangelicals, in particular, that society is moving away from where they think it ought to be on this issue. so, they're fighting back more strongly on this particular issue. but, again, i think it goes back to what i was saying earlier about there is a strongly held view amongst some evangelicals, still, that being gay is a matter of choice. it's what i believed growing up. i grew up southern baptist. people chose to be gay and it
was a sinful choice and i should speak out against it. not until many years of wrestling with my own feelings that i was able to admit to myself that i was gay and i had chosen it. as people come to understand that and understand the experiences of gay people, they become much more understanding and much more empthetic and a lot of this kind of conflict goes away. >> boy, justin lee, it has been so interesting and such a pleasure to speak with you today. executive director of the gay christian network, author, as well. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. all right, still to come on "new day," she looks perfectly normal, but some say this girl could be the smartest 3-year-old on the planet. more on her off the charts iq and the wild things her brain can do. plus, anyone who uses an iphone or an ipad, you need to hear this one.

bradley jacobs director from "us weekly." which one should people pick? >> if you had had to take it down to just one, i have to say, you got to see "12 years a slave." this is in many ways movie of the year. it is in a tight race for best picture with "gravity" and "american hustle." lupita nyong'o is also a red carpet superstar. this is a harrowing story, a little slice of american history that everybody needs to know. it is tough to watch. i remember when i saw it, there is a two-minute seen of chthe slave character just hanging. if there is one movie to see in the next seven days, this would be it. >> say we carve out a little
time for two movies, what's your second pick? >> if you can find a second one, see "dallas buyers club." this is going to have two big wins. matthew mcconaughey for best actor and jared leto for best supporting actor. matt ma c matt mcconaughey plays a heterosexual who's very homophobic. his arc what happens to him and how he meets the jared leto character who's a transgendered, gay guy, becoming a woman, and their evolving relationship is very moving. there's one scene in particular that really resonated with me in a supermarket that really shows how much mcconaughey's character grows where he sticks up for jared leto, a person who he used to make fun of months ago. so it is really incredible and another important one to see. >> we've got "12 years a slave,"
then "dallas buyers club." say i'm off friday -- >> are you off friday? >> i'm not. but let's just say that i'm off friday and i've got time for another one. what's your third pick? >> sneak out and see "blue jasmine." this is my favorite performance of the year. cate blanchett. she's going to win best actress. this is her sixth nomination. she is a leading lady we all know and she's finally going to win. she plays a park avenue socialite so deep into denial about what's happened to her. i couldn't take my eyes off of her. the movie is only 90 minutes long, it could have gone on another 90 minutes. her performance is just magic. it is kind of what movie going is all about. with all this woody allen stuff that's happening, all this
scandal that's risen again after 20 years, cate blanchett has kind of stayed away from it. people feel bad that it's tainted her at all, but this performance stands on its own. it is just incredible. that would be my third movie to see. >> so if we had to -- if we're overachievers and we're going to say i'm going to get all of them but there's one i'm going to miss -- just one -- which one do we skip? >> i personally say you can skip "nebraska." it is nominated for best picture. i'm sorry to any "nebraska" fans out there, but it was dreary. it was not an enjoyable movie for me. honestly, as someone who spent a lot of type in the midwest, i went to northwestern, i was born in canada, i thought it made midwestern people look terrible. it really made them look small-minded and like idiots and i just didn't appreciate it. i know a lot of people love this movie, say it says a lot about family and there is a great performance by bruce dern. but overall i would say you
might be able to skip that one if you had to. >> if you could fit in eight movies in a week, you can get a ninth one in. >> when you watch the oscars you feel like, i'm invested in this and i have my opinions and i can either rejoice or say "that shouldn't have happened!" >> absolutely. bradley jacobs, thanks so much for counting them through with us, one, two, and three. >> sure thing. thanks, guys. have you heard about atlanta wanting to kick out justin bieber almost before he gets here? >> there are some people here who say please don't come. don't even look at house. there are some folks here in atlanta that are making sure the pop star does not move to town. plus, glowing reindeer? what's going on here? why some farmers say it's going to cut down on car accidents.

released. we know that four of those patients were ambulance personnel, three of them were police officers. police who are out here say that overwhelmingly the victims were actually staff members of the legal seafoods restaurant. >> this one restaurant has that condemned sign on it, but it is connected to a mall. sunday is a shopping day for a lot of people. what's the concern that other areas, other stores in that mall, will be affected? >> well, right now police are saying it appears that this leak was really confined just to the basement of the legal seafoods and that's why we're seeing that notice that it's been condemned on the door. the restaurant is attached to two other restaurants -- cheesecake factory and a panera here. those restaurants were both evacuated but police say that was really a precaution at the time because they didn't know where the leak was coming from or how far it could spread. >> alexandra field there for us at huntington station. one of the most dangerous and violent men in the world is is in jail after noorly 13 years

turbulence between 2002 and 2011. so what's the science behind turbulence, and is there anything anyone can do to avoid it? >> air flows just like water does and it can flow smoothly or it can have interruptions in that flow and be caused by mountains, it can be caused by thunderstorms, passage of fronts, or just be a small localized area, what's typically called clear-air turbulence. >> reporter: the united flight was flying over the rocky mountains with being a common spet for what's called mountain wave turbulence. >> the turbulence caused by those mountains can reach well above the height of the mountains themselves and cause the air to tumble and roll and create turbulence. >> reporter: turbulence can also be triggered by thunderstorms, even when the skies are clear. >> convective turbulence is caused by rising hot air typiiyl everywhere especially in the summertime when the ground is warm and hot air is rising. >> turbulence is very erratic,
very spotty, so it could be that if they were at this very same location, even ten minutes later, it may not have been a severe event. >> reporter: but that doesn't change things for the passengers of united flight 1676 who had a flight they will never forget. jennifer grey, cnn, atlanta. >> i'm still always impressed that pilots can get control back. >> i hate turbulence. i can't stand it. another gin and tonic, three limes, please. >> oh, boy. still to come on "new day," the supreme court has a docket full of controversial cases ahead. gun rights expansion, executive power of the president. we'll run down the list. and the first openly gay nfl prospect faces the media. we'll tell you what he had to say. ♪ [ chicken caws ] [ male announcer ] when your favorite food starts a fight, fight back fast with tums. heartburn relief that neutralizes acid on contact

small way. we are so glad that you spent some time with us today. make some great memories. >> we'll see you next weekend. right now, stay tuned for "inside politics" with john king. it's president obama's turn for a big election year about-face. first it was speaker john boehner on immigration. now the president on social security. >> my budget does also contain the compromise i offered speaker boehner. >> that was 2013 when working together and deficit reduction mattered. but never mind, this is 2014. governing takes a back seat to politics. plus, chris christie's command performance. >> there may be people in this room who disagree with me on something. all of us are from new jersey. what that means is if you get it, you are getting it right back. >> but one upbeat town hall won't make bridge gate go
